OK, maybe I could have been a bit more sensitive, but this gets so tiresome. Give them the slightest opportunity and they respond like a Pavlovian animal. Their actions are as repulsive as they are predictable.
Sessions met with Russian envoy twice last year, encounters he later did not disclose
THE DEMS PARLAYED THIS INTO: HE LIED!! HE LIED!! HE MUST STEP DOWN! IMPEACH TRUMP!!
In a statement issued Wednesday night, Sessions said he “never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false.”
Justice officials said Sessions met with Kislyak on Sept. 8 in his capacity as a member of the armed services panel rather than in his role as a Trump campaign surrogate.
“He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign — not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee,” Flores said.
Pelosi calls for Sessions’s resignation
“Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate. Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, ‘I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I did not have communications with the Russians.’ We now know that statement is false,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“Now, after lying under oath to Congress about his own communications with the Russians, the Attorney General must resign. Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign.”
Cummings says Sessions should step down over conversations with Russian ambassador
“Attorney General Sessions should resign immediately, and there is no longer any question that we need a truly independent commission to investigate this issue.”

Manchin: Sessions should resign if he lied about Russia contacts
The only Senate Democrat who voted to confirm Jeff Sessions for attorney general says Sessions should resign if he misled Congress about his meetings with a Russian ambassador last year.

Warren Joins Dems in Call For Sessions to Resign: ‘This Is Not Fake News’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is joining Reps. Nany Pelosi and Elijah Cummings in calling for U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions to step down after a Washington Post report revealed that he spoke with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. twice over the last year.
“It’s a simple q: ‘Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election?'”
“Jeff Sessions answered ‘No.’ Turns out he met with the Russian Ambassador. Two months before the election.”
“This is not normal. This is not fake news. This is a very real & serious threat to the national security of the United States.”
The left remains blissfully ignorant that their ad hominem attacks on the president and his Cabinet accomplishes little except to expose them as petty, petulant whiners who have no interest in the welfare of the country or its people, rather advancing their own personal vendettas against those they lost power to.
